I haven't seen an idea about this so I'll go ahead and write it down to see if its just me that would like this. I've been thinking about an idea for Spotify, I have a pretty big playlist that has about 1000 songs with 1000+ subscribers. And I bet that there is a lot of ideas of songs that could fit into this to make it better among the subscribers. There are probably also general opinions about the content in the list.
My idea is to make a "newsfeed/guestbook" for the playlist an available choice for the "playlist-author". This could be some sort of drop down menu that isn't always visible. That way it wouldn't "disturb" the typical spotify look but still be another useful function.
So this is just something for you to get an understanding for what i mean:
This could make it even easier to share music and explore new music, I think that is one of the great things about Spotify, that you explore so much new music and talented artists. Why not make it even easier to share that with people that have the same taste in music (that subscribes to the same playlist/playlists).
What do you think?

In settings of the Spotify App should be a "News" section. On this page: "Play news every:" (Here user enter minutes) "minutes from that categories:"( here user switches on and off in a list of topics: politics, economy, sports, music,....) On the bottom of the page is a switch titled with "breaking news". (This very important news from above topics are played as soon as they publish). News can be enabled or disabled in the "song view" while listening music. If enabled, news will be played like ads between songs. For free users one ad follows each newssection (as ads disturb less after news than between songs) General: Spotify should present that news based on Twitter.
